Getting around

The airport is about 9km from the town centre. Taxis into town cost around US$4. For a minibus (US$0.20), walk 200m to the roundabout at the start of Ave de 14 Novembro.

Shared taxis – usually Mercedes, and always painted blue and white – are plentiful and ply all main routes. Prices vary according to distance and whim, but never cost more than US$0.80 per person for trips within the town centre.

Small toca-toca (minibuses) painted blue and yellow serve major city routes (around US$0.20), including a run from Mercado de Bandim up Ave de 14 Novembro to the paragem and airport.
